My Ride: 01 325i sedan
Rear passenger sitting low need help ASAP

Hi, I recently noticed that the rear passenger side is sitting lower showing more camber then the driver side. I replaced both shocks both upper shock mounts and shock boots and the big bushing that goes on the shock shaft. I was wondering what i need to do to correct that like bushings. If anybody had this problem please respond cause its getting a little irritating trying to find the problem. Thanks. By the way its on a 01 325i sedan with sport suspension.

My sedan has the same issue. Can't seem to dial it out. Alignment checked out -1.26 left -1.36 right although camber is higher when I use my clinometer gauge / toe is .11 and .15.

Mine has 60,000 miles standard suspension.

Doesn't pull on the highway so I'm ok with it.

Are you sure that the spring hasn't broken? If a stock spring, they have been known to break.

I replaced all the springs with H&R lowering springs.
